I'm having a peculiar problem...

Whenever I try to boot from CD, it gets to the DMI pool thing and then just hangs. If I eject the CD and restart, it boots back into Vista just fine, and the DVDRW works fine from inside the OS.

The only thing I can think of is that it may have something to do with the configuration of SATA in the bios, but I'm not sure what settings I'd change.

Currently have 5 SATA devices hooked up-- 2 36GB raptors in RAID0 and 2 1TB WDs in RAID1. And the DVDRW.

Any ideas?
